New Item Specification Report

This new report provides notification to your customers of product performance and properties. Up to 10 user-defined data fields with a variety of data types can be included in a formal item specification report. The report content can include testing processes and quality levels. Item properties can be classified and grouped. Utilizing the same data that is generated and managed by your quality control processes for your reporting ensures a closed-loop process for product performance.

An additional 6 user-defined fields for use in the header of the report have been added, bringing the total number of user-defined fields to 12.
